Water and sanitation project

Water and sanitation is one of Rotary's areas of focus. Worldwide, more than 880 million people lack access to clean drinking water.

In 2010 the Rotary Club of Almaty has taken the decision to realize one of the six main avenues of Rotary Service by accomplishing a Water and Sanitation project in schools of Almaty Region, where this problem was daunting.

Local Almaty Region Authorities by the RotaryClub of Almaty Request provided the addresses of four schools where the situation with the clean water supply was the worst - the primary schools in viliges Kyzylzhar, Ungurtas, Besagash, Zhansugurova and Saryozek.

After the estimation of the budget and situation in schools the Rotary club of Almaty decided to start with schools in villages Kyzylzhar, Ungurtas, Besagash and the orphanage shelter under conduct of priest Safronii in the Tyumebayeva village. The shelter includes children’s orphanage and nursing house for elderly people.

The fund raising event “James Bond Ball” organized and held by the Rotary Club Of Almaty in partnership with the European Business Assosiation of Kazakhstan in February 2011 provided 20.000 USD for the project.

The project was completed within 4 months.

The total amount of beneficiaries of the project are more than 3 500 Children!

  • Ungurtas - 292 children
  • Besagash - 1377 children
  • Kyzylzhar (Sovet village ) -565 childre
